Winemakers notes ~ Our reserve program is where our winemaker gets to shine! These wines are hand-crafted. Greg might do additional cluster sorting prior to crush or leaving the juice on the lees longer to achieve a more intense and flavorful wine. Then the wines are aged longer, in the case of the Petite Sirah he ages them in French oak for 36 months. Once the wine is bottled it is laid down to rest for an additional 12 months prior to releasing it to the public.

Tasting notes ~ Our Reserve Petite Sirah is built to last. High levels of tannins with dense blackberry, blueberry and plum flavors allow this wine to age very well. The black pepper notes, licorice, and a hint of smoke just get better and better. Best served at room temperature. We recommend serving our Petite Sirah with steak, roast, game and dark chocolate. Herbs, such as black peppar, clove, thyme, and garlic compliment this wine.
